Photographing the Imaginary: Jack Meadowsweet

Last weekend, I and Jack Meadowsweet headed out to have our shoot for the Chronotography book.  Jack, who I know through the Harry Potter group, The Group That Shall Not Be Named, took me around Manhattan and suffered greatly in their black velvet outfit in 87* weather. Through the adventure, the heat, and climbing over…

Chronotography will be Available in Print and Digital!

Over the past few weeks, I’ve received many of the same questions that I have answered privately and am now answering publicly – Chronotography will be able to be purchased outside of this Kickstarter. When the product is finished, the hardcover will be available in an online store, and the digital version should be available in the same…

Behind the Scenes: Katie Kat Opera and The Artwork of Brett Kelley

This weekend past, I grabbed two models and set us all up inside of Studio 59 in Torrington, CT.  Studio 59 is a performance gallery inside of a historic church, just minutes from downtown Torrington. Additionally, Kris Costa came all the way up from New Jersey to do Katie’s hair and makeup, and assisted with…

Chronotography Shoot: Katie Cat Opera & The Artwork of Brett Kelley

This weekend I will be completing two more shoots for the Chronotography book – both in the same location, but it is a pretty large place, so I should be able to utilize a lot of it. Model, opera singer, mother, and aerial performer Katie Kat has found a wonderful location for us in Connecticut…

Behind the Scenes: Leah Siren

I mentioned in last week’s post that I had shot 2 days straight for the book, so today I will talk a little about the previous shoot. It started out, as all shoots should, with some conferring over the next few hours with Moana playing in the background.  2017 has been strange with the weather, and…

Behind the Scenes: Railroad Museum of New England

This weekend I had shoots with 4 groups of folks for the Chronotography book. Sunday was the larger of the two days, with 7 models.  Thankfully the Railroad Museum of New England (Website | Facebook | Twitter) allowed us access to the property for most of the day. We spent the day in, on, and around the trains for some great…

Chronotography Shoot: Red Fork Citizens

Today I’m out in the “untamed wilds” of Conneticuit with several members of the Red Fork Empire for their portion of the Chronotography Shoot. We have (almost) free reign of a train yard, props, and boundless energy due to the gift of Dunkin’.  Some behind the scenes photos and video will be taken, and the…

Chronotography Shoot: Leah Siren

Probably by the time this posts (yay post scheduling!), I will be out with Leah Siren working on her section of the book! The two of us have worked together many times before, with Leah wearing the styles of Redfield Design (as seen below). Today we’ll be in Worcester in a beautiful white Victorian-Inspired outfit…

In this lineup, we have: – Designer & Model – Redfield Design – Model…

Photographing the Imaginary: Newt Scamander & More

If you’ve seen or read Fantastic Beasts, you know that Newt Scamander is a pleasantly awkward, inquisitive character who is always up for an adventure to rescue “his” animals or those he deems it’s his responsibility to protect.  When working with this image, I wanted to show that Newt was doing something possibly dangerous while remaining…

Photographing the Imaginary: Vladimir Snape & Evercrumbly & Witch

If you’re familiar with my photography, then you well know that I love the post processing part.  And at MISTI-Con, I was well able to stretch my imagination by utilizing a seamless black background, some gels, and great models. This week on my stream Photographing the Imaginary, I was able to show off how to get from…

First Shoot: Redfield Design 

This coming weekend, I will be doing the first shoot for the Chronotography book, with designer Redfield Design and Infernal Machine Manufactories. You’ve seen me take more pictures of the designs than the designer, so I’m really glad to have a session that will to light her and well as her talent! [Please note: Please only take…
